  1. Robertson had a strange game for me. Defensively sound, not too much to do. The switching between him and Tierney to go LWB or LCB worked well. Apart from his assists, he put several tasty crosses across the six yard box - particularly in the second half - which merited far better anticipation from those that are supposedly playing further up the park than he is. However his corners - apart from the very first one - were absolutely howling all afternoon. I'll put it down to something worked on in training not translating properly into a game scenario. Anyway, happy with any Scotland 3-0 win, so every praise to the players and the management team for that!!
  2. No way they will survive penalties. They have Tavernier (whose bottle shatters in shoot outs) and Barisic and.....................no-one else. We have Muirhead, Holt, Turner, Dowds, Lawless, Docherty, Sneddon, Milne, Bannigan and more if required.
  3. It's truly heartwarming to know that even in retirement, Dougie Imrie can find a way to receive a red card at Firhill.
  4. Gianluca Vialli dead @ 58 from pancreatic cancer. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/64039302 RIP Gianluca. His book with Gabriele Marcotti remains one of the most informative football books ever.
  5. You may not think that was any kind of statement. But you have no idea what a boost your perspective is to many of us whose heads go down every so often. You've been through circumstances that nobody would wish on any human being - sharing your experience on here is clearly important to you, and I hope you understand that doing so gives us all a sense of balance and empathy. Thanks for posting and please continue to do so - we are always here for you, and we bloody well appreciate that you post. We certainly benefit and learn from your experience.
  6. Good analysis, thanks. However, it begs an obvious question - why hasn't Aidan Fitzpatrick taken advantage of the opportunity to cement a starting place?
  7. Sadly we did - 0-0 in December 1987 (Euro 88 qualifier). https://eu-football.info/_match.php?id=8753
  8. Matterface is an insufferable English c**t. If you require further verification, head to his commentary in the Euro 2021 final.
  9. You know it's gone to shit when listening to Rod Stewart's Every Picture Tells a Story is better than watching the telly.
  10. Correct jagfox, there was an Old Firm game scheduled at Celtic Park on Monday 1st September. It was postponed and eventually played on 19th November.
  11. You are misinterpreting or not understanding what I posted. Of course the SG will pay it from day 1 (would seem an obvious solution but who knows) but the settlement in lieu of contributions already made to the UKG will be go towards the funding of it. No one is saying the UKG will fully fund it or pay it for years. There will be a settlement figure the terms of which (one off or ongoing instalments from UKG) will be decided during the negotiations. Exactly this. In much the same way that the pensions of ex-UK MEPs and ex-UK employees of the European Institutions were ring-fenced as part of the Brexit negotiation.
